Samuel Johnson recently fulfilled his promise to raise $10million for lifesaving cancer research by 2020.

And on Monday, the 41-year-old actor revealed that his loved ones are now worried he could fall back into bad habits after seven years of tireless campaigning.

He told TV Week: 'My family and friends are very worried about me regressing into old and destructive behaviours.'

'What do I have when I don't have the thing I've been obsessing about for seven years?' he added.

Samuel previously told WHO magazine that he takes responsibly for his past issues with addiction and doesn't blame showbusiness.
